I've not posted for a little while, however I'd really love anyone's thoughts...
My symptoms are:
Bleeding during intercourse
Rectal bleeding during period
Sometimes pain during intercourse (if deep penetration...sorry!)
I had a lap in May that didn't show any endo on my ovaries, Fallopian tubes or the outside of my bowel. Was also due to have hysteroscopy at the same time, however apparently my cervix is too narrow. I've subsequently had 2 internal (IV) scans and 2 ultrasound scans at different times of my cycle to look at my uterus as the lining is thicker than it should be. The thickness varied, and apparently there's no sign of polyps in my uterus.
Because of no endo showing on the outside of my bowel, I've had a sigmoidoscopy to check for endo in my sigmoid colon. And there was none. However....I'm still getting rectal bleeding during my period, albeit it seems less than it was when this all started. I get occasional bleeding during intercourse, which again isn't as much as it used to be.
I was waiting for a follow up appointment following my sigmoidoscopy, however this was 3 months ago and I haven't heard anything!
I don't really want to go back to the same consultant as I think he feels like he's got to a dead end with me. Can I be referred to someone different?
The more I read up, the more it sounds to me like endo in my pouch of Douglas. However, I wasn't clued up as much when I had my lap, so didn't ask my consultant if he'd looked there!
Any advice/ideas? I'd be grateful if anything, no matter how silly you think it may sound. I need to make my next move however I'm just not sure what the best way to get this all sorted is now.
Thanks everyone xx
